For Musicians – Manywood Batons and Baton Box



These batons and baton box were made for a music conductor friend of mine. The baton handles are turned on a lathe and the shafts are carbon fiber for strength and lightness. The box has a sliding top and holds several batons. The top and bottom of the box are built with many different woods and have several layers of “overlay.”

The bow case shown was custom made from Maple and Ironwood. The bulk of this piece is cut from a single piece of hard maple. The latches were my original design, in lieu of the common box hardware that I felt was inadequate. These latches are simple and their appearance is clean.
